Stephen Wade

The Beautiful Music All Around Us

In his second of a three-concert series at AMP this fall, Stephen Wade focuses on his much-acclaimed book and concert piece, The Beautiful Music All Around Us: Field Recordings and the American Experience. Described as a “masterpiece of humane scholarship—but one that reads like a detective story” (Wall Street Journal), this award-winning book and live music presentation details the rich backstories of 13 field recordings undertaken by the Library of Congress from the Southern Appalachians, Mississippi Delta, and the Great Plains. Wade brings to compelling life—in accounts both amusing and evocative—stories, songs, scenes, artifacts, and memories that inhabit this multi-decade journey across the American land. 

Don't miss Wade's final concert of the series on December 2.
